Neverwinter Nights: Diamond

Technical Issues

Neverwinter Nights does not run in 12.10

This Ask Ubuntu question is answered by Mik in detail.


Stuttering Video/Sound

System:

  • Windows 7 64-bit
  • eVGA nVidia 8800 GTS 512
  • Intel Core 2 Quad 6600

The fix was to open **nwnplayer.ini** and change

 Client CPU Affinity=0

to

 Client CPU Affinity=-2

Audio runs, but no video

Mentioned in the HotUreadme file

Open nwn.ini and change

 "SafeMovie=0". 

to

 "SafeMovie=1"

No Video

  • Make sure you have patch 1.69 installed (the last one)
  • Try disabling Desktop Composition (properties on nwmain.exe, compatibility tab)
  • Try the fixed binkw32.dll by Nurvall, mentioned in the "no movies even with v1.69" thread mentioned below.


Shiny water not working

No fix, disable it.
